Sandalwood & Amber

April 14, 2017

This was a blend that I didn’t think would work, but really did! And quite well.  Maybe because I know the two scents I blended but my nose catches one and then the other and then back to the other.  It’s funny. I do like though.  It mellows the sandalwood scent a bit and gives it a bit more of a musky scent.

A woody, lush and sensual note of sandalwood blended with rustic Amber and bold Parisian Lavender. Combined with these main scents is a mysterious Black Myrrh, dulcet vanilla Tonka bean, and a splash of Egyptian Musk.

Wild Currant & Sandalwood

April 12, 2017

I made this soap years ago (a different design) and really liked it and decided to make it again this year.  I just made a small batch.  The design DID NOT go as planned. I know if you’re looking at you probably say it looks great. And it does, but it was NOT what I wanted.  😀

It is a blend with top notes of Clementine, Grapefruit, and Black Berries; middle notes of Wild Fig, Black Currant, and Passion Fruit; all surrounded with base notes of Precious Woods, Sandalwood, Vanilla, and Metallic Musk.

Pineapple Papaya Ginger

April 9, 2017

This is another blend I created and love. I made the soap for me.  I had to really cool intricate design planned and then I added in the fragrance and seizing started and I went into “jam it in the mold” mode.  It still smells yummy!

Sweet, juicy and tropical! A tantilizing blend of citrus top notes, and sweet fruits and sugared base notes. At first sniff, mandarin, pineapple and coconut palms open this bright fragrance. Mid notes of papaya guava and pomegranate are rounded out with a base of sugarcane, sandalwood and cypress. Tough with a hint of ginger.

Angel Love

April 4, 2017

When soap doesn’t go as planned and turns out better than what you had planned = WINNING!  I love this layered look with the mica lines between each layer.  Mind you this was nothing like what I thought I’d do for this design :).

It  is a feminine, gourmand aroma with luscious rich top notes of lemon, raspberry, honeydew melon, black currants; with middle notes of jasmine, gardenia, and nutmeg; bottom notes of white chocolate, musk, sandalwood, and patchouli.

Mayan Musk

March 23, 2017

Love the colors in this soap.  I was playing around with a new technique that kind of sort of did what I was going for.  I’m going to play with it some more, but overall I think it’s fun and the colors work well together. As you can see from the suppliers description this is quite a complex scent, but it really does smell good!

It has fresh orange and crisp aldehyde which lead to a warm blend of woods and musk to create this sensual fragrance. Hints of rose are balanced with patchouli, cedar wood and sandalwood for warmth. A highly textured blend of musk notes is sweetened with hints of vanilla.

Lavender Vanilla

March 19, 2017

Lavender Vanilla…another vanilla.  I’ve had such a good response with this scent in my wax melts that I decided to make it in soap. I knew it would discolor and tried to use that to my advantage in the design.  And again with those darn vanilla beans. There wasn’t a single picture I was happy with how they looked in. *sigh*

It  is a relaxing and tranquil scent that is also unique and memorable.  A well-rounded combination of fresh lavender, fresh vanilla beans, with orange zests and patchouli.

Coffee Soap w/ ground coffee beans

March 3, 2017

Coffee soap has been on my to do list for like a year. I finally got around to doing it.  It’s a simple soap with coffee grounds for an exfoliant.  Smells like coffee (not my favorite scent but I know many will love it).

So, I’m only slightly OCD or obsessive or whatever word we want to use to describe the fact that I individually places each coffee bean in this picture trying to get the groupings to look like they’d just perfectly and randomly fallen into place! 😀
